605 Geology-Physics Building


Service-driven researcher, teacher, and mentor in environmental science and policy. Together with my collaborators and students, I’ve published over 40 articles and raised over $2 million in research funding. My current research focuses on atmospheric methane emissions from the oil and gas supply chain and climate change feedbacks. I also work on community engaged research toward environmental justice and greenhouse gas emissions reductions together with my students.

Asst Professor - Educator, Geography

400A Braunstein Hall


I am an Assistant Professor- Educator in the Department of Geography & GIS (College of A&S). My primary research interest is adopting an interdisciplinary approach to understanding human-environment relations and the evolution of urban landscapes, particularly as they relate to resource conservation and sustainability. My current fieldwork focuses on the study of household and community scale, sustainable water management activities in subtropical regions. I am also interested in the cultural geographies of food and sport, particularly the geospatial dynamics of craft breweries and urban cycling networks.
